Now Open: Doma and H.O.M.E. Debut in Beverly Hills

There's always something new - or someone renewing themselves - in Beverly Hills. This week, you have two newcomers to check out while shop-hopping around the Golden Triangle. First is Doma, which a release claims is a "European, Mediterranean, California, touch of Asian" spot from Sonja Perencevic, the current owner of Dan Tana's. But in reality, Doma (the word means "at home" in Croatian) is more Italian than anything, just more modern than the Santa Monica Boulevard classic, with Dustin Trani at the helm in the kitchen. The fourth-generation chef, whose family restaurant, J Trani's, still keeps 'em full in San Pedro, features a little bit of everything on the menu: arancini, smoked swordfish carpaccio with frisee, pizzas, raviolo with sea urchin and stone crab, grilled veal chop with soft parmesan polenta. To drink, fancy cocktails with cheeky names and an extensive wine list. Doma is open for lunch and dinner daily (362 N. Camden Dr.; 310-277-7346).

Nearby, H.O.M.E., which stands for House of Music & Entertainment, is a new jazz supper club in the former Mandarin Restaurant. It's a nice open space, white linens and leather banquettes, dark woods, and a small stage. The menu - mac and cheese, slow-braised pork belly, scallop and salmon tartare - is as fusion as the nightly live musical lineup. There's no minimum to keep the table during the shows, but you are required to make a reservation, and a $5 fee per person will be tacked on to your bill. Check out the website to see who's playing (430 N. Camden Dr.; 310-271-4663). [via Eater]
